  1. Assessment of genetic diversity of rice based on SNP markers for selection of parents for sheath rot (<em>Sarocladium oryzae</em>) resistance breeding

    Assessment of genetic diversity of rice based on SNP markers for selection of parents for sheath rot (<em>Sarocladium oryzae</em>) resistance breeding

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Plant and Soil
    Sheath rot of rice, caused by Sarocladium oryzae, is an important emerging rice disease not only in Rwanda, but also in other rice-growing countries. Given that cultivar resistance is a sustainable management strategy for small-scale farmers, the aim of this...
  2. Connectivity between the Algerian population of Greater Flamingo <em>Phoenicopterus roseus</em> and those of the Mediterranean basin

    Connectivity between the Algerian population of Greater Flamingo <em>Phoenicopterus roseus</em> and those of the Mediterranean basin

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    In the Mediterranean basin, Greater Flamingos Phoenicopterus roseus constitute a metapopulation with natal and breeding dispersal among colonies. However, the rate of exchange between European and North African colonies remains poorly known. In this paper, we document the wintering and...
  3. A preliminary study of allozyme differences amongst <em>Carcharhinus</em> sharks from the continental slope near Abidjan, Côte d'lvoire

    A preliminary study of allozyme differences amongst <em>Carcharhinus</em> sharks from the continental slope near Abidjan, Côte d'lvoire

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Genetic variability of fifty-five shark specimens from the genus Carcharhinus was analysed using 18 allozyme loci. Sixteen loci were polymorphic either within, or between, species. Levels of genetic polymorphism, as measured by observed heterozygosity values, ranged from 0.008 (±0.008) to...
  4. Antiretroviral adherence and virological outcomes in HIV-positive patients in Ugu district, KwaZulu-Natal province

    Antiretroviral adherence and virological outcomes in HIV-positive patients in Ugu district, KwaZulu-Natal province

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Adherence to antiretroviral therapy is crucial to ensure viral suppression. In the scientific community it is widely accepted that an adherence level of at least 90% is necessary to achieve viral suppression. This study uses pharmacy refill records to describe...
